Currently have a pe and now bronchitis, for several hours my resting heart rate is 120-140. Should I worry?

You have a reason: The reason your resting heart rate is so high is because of the PE. As a vital sign, it tells you that something is wrong; however, you KNOW what is wrong. At this point, trying to lower your resting heart rate is counter-productive, even dangerous. As you continue treatment, it should gradually decrease to the "normal" range of 60-100 bpm, once the condition resolves. ...Read more

Resting heart rate increased at 100 BPM its annoying me and im on dostinex (cabergoline) since 2 weeks. Should I worry? Should I go to the hospital?

Call your prescriber: Usually people do not feel increases in their heart rate. It is more likely that the heart rate increase is a marker of something else happening as a side effect of the medication such as the common side effect of blood pressure lowering. There is nothing dangerous about this level of heart rate temporarily. Call your doctor and schedule an appointment to discuss it ...Read more

Have panic attacks but sometimes resting heart rate increases w/o feelings of anxiety--normal test results-not worried-curious abt avg. Fluctuations?

Normal heart rate: A normal heart rate is between 60 and 90 beats per minute. It can vary slightly depending upon race, gender, age, and smoking status. Degree of physical fitness is also a factor since there are plenty of people who are very physically fit with a heart rate of 50. Clinically if your resting heart pulse is over 120 or under 50 if you have any symptoms, then it would be appropriate to be seen by your doctor. ...Read more

Will taking adderrall 30 mg and verapamil 120 mg a day increase my resting heart rate and give me irregular heart beats?

Will taking adderrall 30 mg and verapamil 120 mg a day increase my resting heart rate and give me irregular heart beats?

Irregular heart beat: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant that's used for ADHD - so just like caffeine and other stimulants it can lead to irregular beats -- especially if the dose is too high for you. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is actually an amphetamine or 'speed' so you can understand why it might have that effect. Verapamil on the other hand is a calcium channel blocker and serves to ssslllooowww things down, so that should in some ways help ...Read more

Amitriptyline (12.5mg) use increase resting heart rate (+10-15bpm) in athlete. Normal? Echocardiogram & EKG normal 5 years ago. 150b, 6ft male.

Amitriptyline (12.5mg) use increase resting heart rate (+10-15bpm) in athlete. Normal? Echocardiogram & EKG normal 5 years ago. 150b, 6ft male.

Missing some info.: I suspect that we are missing some information because this case, as described, isn't quite right. Why would you want to raise the resting heart rate (HR)? A low HR is better & being an athlete you would naturally have a lower HR (& live longer as a result). Unless you have SOME other symptom / condition, there's no reason to use Amitriptyline (which can lower HR). Use HealthTap Prime to discuss. ...Read more
